I think apart from some obvious choices that I'm not gonna name I think it needs autobiographical songs or songs that just fit Michael's persona like a glove. I'm thinking about Music and me, with a child's heart and childhood. I also would like seeing purely magical songs like someone in the dark or scared of the moon which showcase divine vocals, maybe in a fantastical dream sequence? Maybe some really sweet animation sequence of 2 lonely creatures reaching out? I don't want it to be dry biopic drama, it should have some magic because Michael in his mind saw things differently than other people.
Others that are absolutely required are the lady in my life, shake your body down to the ground (they really should recreate this song performance as they did it on tv shows in 1979), who's loving you is also an absolute necessity!
Whatever they end up picking I hope some attention will go towards lesser known or forgotten songs, with such a vast discography (including Motown) the sky is the limit really.
Later era songs that could provide something meaningful like Morphine, Is it scary, will you be there should get some attention too.

For the ending credits, I want an uplifting song which showcases hope and friendship. Maybe someone in the dark or I like the way you love me?

I really hope the Motown section will not be glossed over but that seems unlikely. I'm probably putting too much expectations on this, I'm bound to get disappointed lol.

PS I hope the movie if it is any good will be 8 hours long ;-)

I honestly would love for "Someone Put Your Hand Out" to be included, besides being a beautiful song I think the lyrics are very personal to MJ and could work really well to show the world how he felt inside.

Music & Me should also be in the biopic. That song is a very autobiographical song that shows Michael's never ending relationship with music.
